Curtis Granderson was placed on the disabled list with his broken finger. This is a kick in the you know what and it kind of rains on the whole Miguel Cabrera contract extension parade. It looks like he’ll be out at least the first two weeks of the season barring any set back. Interestingly enough, Brandon Inge appears to be ready to take over as the starting centerfielder. It also means Ryan Raburn will stick unless the Tigers go with Freddy Guzman instead.
Nate Robertson threw his second to last spring start of the season and once again got the job done. He gave up just a single run in 5 1/3 innings and that drops his spring ERA to 1.26. Zach Miner took the brunt of the damage with a two run eighth in the 5-3 win. Justin Verlander gets the start tomorrow and it’s a 6:05 start time.
